Curated by: Christiana Bartolini
Total songs: 9 | Created: Dec 19, 2012

This has been quite the breakout year for many under-the-radar indie artists. While some of our other “Best Of” lists this year contain big name acts, I decided to mix the big with the not so big, and compile a list of the top 10 albums that I just couldn’t turn off.

Bear in mind that it pained me to cut this list down to only 10 of the best indie acts, so be sure to also check out these honorable mentions:

Andrew Bird – Break It Yourself
Ava Luna – Ice Level
Beach House – Bloom
Caveman – CoCo Beware
Cineplexx – Perfume
Dirty Projectors – About To Die
Fierce Creatures – Catacomb Party
Heavenly Beat – Talent
Miniature Tigers – Mia Pharaoh
Nick Waterhouse – Time’s All Gone
Poor Moon – Poor Moon
Rufus Waintwright - Out Of The Game
Tame Impala – Lonerism
Twin Shadow – Confess
Wild Nothing – Nocturne
Yeasayer – Fragrant World
Alt-J – An Awesome Wave

Every year I am amazed at some of the new music I hear. There are avenues being explored that open your mind and ears to a whole new way to appreciate modern music. I can only wait with bated breath for 2013′s releases to unravel.
